Temple University’s College of Public Health is leading a new movement to reimagine the future of public health. Through transdisciplinary research and interprofessional education, our students, staff and faculty embrace public health as a catalyst for individual and community change in pursuit of the common good. We are seeking applicants for instructional faculty in Biostatistics to join a growing academic unit.
Position and Qualifications. We have an opening for an enthusiastic instructor to teach undergraduate-level courses and graduate-level courses in biostatistics. A doctorate in biostatistics or a relevant discipline is required. Rank is open with faculty hired at the rank of assistant, associate or full professor on the nontenure instructional track. Additional teaching opportunities may be available in a specific subject area at the graduate level. Because the department offers courses for students in multiple disciplines (e.g., Nursing, Kinesiology), successful candidates should be skilled in teaching quantitative courses to students with a range of aptitude and interest. Online teaching experience is highly desirable. We value diversity and seek individuals committed to inclusive practices in education. This position will also participate in the Biostatistics Core, which is operated by the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

The Department contributes to the College’s nationally recognized BS in Public Health.
